Conscious Catholicism

its now the middle of March – time has certainly flown by. I went for a walk yesterday because I needed to get out of the house and it was a beautiful sunny day here. Things are kinda funny up here. The temperature was barely 52 and yet there were a lot of folks walking around in the shorts and short-sleeve shirts up on Cap Hill. People will take advantage of any sunlight we get and call it warm. There was a lot of white-blue pasty skin for sure, it wasn’t pretty I did wear a short-sleeve shirt and it was ok in the sun but once you got out of direct sunlight – brrrrr. I think maybe I need to start using the tanning bed downstairs in the gym.

My Comcast cable went out yesterday also, which totally sucked because Sunday is the L Word, Grays Anatomy and Desperate Housewives. What was weird was only the channels below 101 weren’t working everything above it was. Theres something wrong (duh) with non-digital services we’re getting then. I hooked up just the aerial antenna and I watched Grays and Desperate in my bedroom – sorta. Mike is home today so the cable guy/gal will be able to come out and fix the damn thing.

I’m not looking forward to work in fact I get bummed every-time I think about going there. I absolutely need to move on from there. I can’t stand my boss or most of my coworkers. I love my customers and frankly they and that I like having an income are the only two things keeping me there. Mike has been in some kind of funk for almost a month or so now so it feels like I’m getting it from everywhere. He never goes out, barely does anything except surf the internet and watch T.V.. He keeps his lights off and windows shut. It’s just such a depressing situation I can’t wait for Spring and light and moving on. So there work which is dark and depressing there is now home which is dark and depressing and there is the death of a friend I’m dealing with which is dark and depressing. Things are definitely looking very Johnny Darko around here. So yes Spring and the return of sunshine is a very good thing. My trip down to L.A. is also a very very good thing, although the weather down there isn’t looking that great these days, at least there will be sun. My efforts at getting a new job and the certainty that everything is going to change in 9 months also holds out enormous hope for me. Time to start my day.
